Breaking News Updates from the OS...

Matt the Shrimp

aka Harry Potter
Oct 27, 2003
Lewisham, London
Round up of the news on the OS:

Barnard Signs for the Saints

* Fee - undisclosed (rumoured to be £175K)
* Scott Malone's loan deal from Wolves extended until the end of the season
* Ron Martin hopeful of bringing in another centre half
* Blues also looking at perhaps a loan for another striker until the end of the season (Akinbiyi, as rumoured on here? Unlikely, but who knows?)

Matt Paterson joins the Shrimpers

* 20 year-old
* Free Transfer
* Signs until summer 2012 with option of another year (option is mentioned in the Barnard article, oddly)
* Said to be a "separate" deal from the Barnard one.

M'Voto comes through unscathed

* Jean-Yves M'Voto comes through 45 mins of reserve team football without injury
* Said to be feeling very upbeat about being injury-free
* Not yet fit enough for first team action

Although I'm sad to see Barney go, he's injury-prone, we got a decent fee for him, and he would (almost certainly) have left at the end of the season for nothing.

I don't know about you folks, but those three stories sound to me like the nearest thing to unqualified good news we've had in an awfully long time. Credit to the club for that.

If I hear news of the club repaying SUSCT's loan, then that would really cap off a great week's work!
